Emily Ratajkowski is by no means a stranger to fashion week, often invited by the designers to sit in the front row and witness the latest stylish offerings. (She is one of today’s biggest trendsetters, after all.) But when she’s not watching the shows, she’s the one being watched. The model has been hitting the catwalk since 2015, and lately she’s been walking designer runways more than ever.

During the 2023 season, she made memorable appearances at fashion week. She boldly freed the nipple at New York Fashion Week last fall, while months later, she closed both the Jonathan Simkhai and Tory Burch shows. She even walked the star-studded Versace catwalk in March.

It’s not a surprise, really. Ratajkowski (AKA EmRata) has almost a decade’s worth of modeling experience. She’s been tapped by some of the most popular designers, such as Miu Miu, JW Anderson, Tory Burch, and Nensi Dojaka, who’s become a favorite of many celebrities in the past couple of years. The street style savant was also chosen to appear alongside Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, and Serena Williams at the star-studded Vogue World show at NYFW.

On each catwalk the My Body writer has walked to date, she’s delivered her signature EmRata flair every time. Whether she’s modeling an itty-bitty bra, a trendy moto jacket, or an oversized tee, she always looks calm, cool, and collected on the runway — as though she was born to do exactly this. She’s simply, a natural.

She already kicked off the 2024 fashion season with appearances at Michael Kors and Tory Burch. With weeks of fashion month still to come, Ratajkowski will likely grace several more catwalks. To that end, step into a time portal of my creation, and let’s take a look back at some of Emily Ratajkowski’s most notable catwalk moments, spanning from 2015 up until the present day.


Tory Burch Spring 2024

Ratajkowski sashayed down the Tory Burch runway in an LBD infused with one of the buzziest trends: sheer mesh. The sculptural details at the hem are A+.


Michael Kors Spring 2024

At the star-studded Michael Kors event, Ratajkowski made a babydoll dress look oh-so-good.


Versace Fall 2023


After fronting the Versace campaign in January, the My Body author took to the label’s Fall 2023 catwalk in March wearing a sleek LBD. Take styling cues from the supermodel and pair a fun bubblegum pink bag with a sophisticated (and gloved) ‘fit.

Ratajkowski made lingerie look elegant, strutting down the Tory Burch runway in a corset dress, fishnet stockings, and black pumps.

Ratajkowski gave a one-woman masterclass in power dressing — with a bold print, padded shoulders, and no pants — at Jonathan Simkhai.


Miu Miu Spring 2023

Ratajkowski strutted her stuff at Miu Miu in a skimpy utility bra and a brown cargo skirt with puffy pockets. White underwear poking out from underneath, plus a shoulder bag, and black thong sandals completed the edgy look.

Motocross-inspired ‘fits are trending right now, so it’s no wonder Ratajkowski hit the runway in this biker-chic look at Versace’s spring ‘23 show.


Nensi Dojaka Spring 2023

Walking for Versace again in February 2022, Ratajkowski wore a slinky, chain-style dress over glossy black latex pants. A fabulously bold look.


Michael Kors Fall 2022

The best-selling author modeled a skimpy, leopard-print coat dress cinched at the waist with a thick black belt at Michael Kors’ fall 2022 show. I hope she went home with this getup, TBH.

Modeling Versace, yet again, Ratajkowski hit the runway during Milan Men’s Fashion Week 2019 in this saucy black and gold boudoir-inspired look.


Versace Pre-Fall 2019


In 2018, the actress and entrepreneur rocked another glamorous LBD, accented with gold details, at Versace’s pre-fall 2019 show.


Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2019

Walking at Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2019 show, she looked stunning in a sheer dress featuring a corseted bodice and a lace-up front. It’s the red rose in the hair that really does it for me.


Versace Fall 2019

More Versace. More black and gold. She rocks it every damn time.


Bottega Veneta Spring 2018

The My Body author donned a decadent black strapless dress for Miu Miu’s fall 2016 show AKA her PFW debut. The moment cemented her status as an it model.
